MADISON TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WDTN) – More than 750 students are back in class two days after a school shooting.
Staff at Madison Jr/Sr High School boarded buses to greet students as they went to school.
Counselors were also on-hand to help students if needed.
Officials tell 2 NEWS there will be increased security in the cafeteria today. It’s all in hopes to give students a ‘normal’ day of class.
Madison Local Schools Superintendent Curtis Philpot said Wednesday morning, “It just felt like a normal day of school. I think kids were glad to be back. I don’t think there was a whole lot of uneasiness. We have a massive number of resources available to our students today, and at this point, a lot of those resources are going unused, which is a good problem to have. We hope it stays that way.”
The Superintendent will release attendance numbers later this afternoon. School officials have planned a news conference Wednesday afternoon at 2:00 p.m.
2 NEWS will be at that conference and will bring you all the latest information online and on air, starting at 5:00.
Classes at the school were cancelled Tuesday after a 14-year-old fired shot in the cafeteria Monday. Two students were shot and two others were injured in the incident.READ MORE: Suspect in school shooting identified, charges released
